Henri Magnien et Fils is a small family estate that was established back in 1987 but there are traces of vines being grown in the family since 1700. They are located at the top of Gevrey-Chambertin and at the foot of the hill of the famed Premier Cru Cazetiers in Côte de Nuits. Though only 6 hectares, they own a number of fantastic Premier Cru parcels in Gevrey including Lavaux St-Jacques, Estournelles St-Jacques, Les Cazetiers and Les Champeaux. Given the use of grapes from vines planted as early as 1915, they have very low yield across the board but make exceptional wines.
The Domaine is now managed by Henri's grandson Charles who aims to "search to produce fine wine, not tannic wine – wine you can drink young, and keep if you want", and one of Charles' interesting practices is that he uses lightly-fired but long-time toasted oak barrels to reduce the presence of vanilla or coffee aromas. The quality from Henri Magnien continues to perform superbly well and it is one of the top names in Gevrey-Chambertin that everyone is paying attention to.
